. and with that i actually submit to you just a device that we are actually using to work with san francisco unified around the programs that we've done during the summer. and whether we are tracking where folks know in the school district ho numbers, whether we can actually look at the students that are in after school programs and what that impact is on their school day. and doing more trainings around what the state standards are, the schools know them. the school district knows them, but what about the service providers? what is it that the kids should be do at the end of the day, what that should look like. so, again, thank you for this and i look forward to seeing what comes from it. >> thank you very much. and i believe now we'll be hearing from our deputy superintendent. guadalupe guerrero. >> good afternoon, commissioner, and supervisors. guadalupe guerrero. i think i'm in the eighth week for deputy superintendent for instruction, innovation and social justice. glad to speak on the topic today. let me switch over to our powerpoint. there we go, thank you. today's presentation there's a few
i actually represented the san francisco unified school district as a lawyer on the consent decree case. one thing to remember is that san francisco unified was actually under court order for more than two decades because of discrimination. and a federal court order, you know, overseeing the operations of the school district could not fully address all of the issues that we're talking about . and during that time each year the school district was getting about $40 million from the state to address those issues. so, just to provide some context. so, my suggestion would be to the folks, the supervisors who requested this hearing and to many of the people that i hear, i do think it would be helpful so that we don't have a situation where we talk about this and nothing happens, to set up a small working group to come up with some suggestions in terms of moving forward whether it's the creation of a task force, whether it is, you know, something larger, because the reality is that we're talking about public education. but there are so many different issues that are a part of this that t
having been an employee of the san francisco unified school district, my hope and my intent as we tackle some very difficult issues which impact all of us is that we do so in the spirit of how do we work together as a city and as a school district to address these issues. i know that in the past some folks on the school district end had felt the prior discussion that has taken place in this committee has been about pointing fingers, and i really think that while it's important for all of us to be accountable, that the goal here is to figure out solutions for these very complicated issues. so, it is in that spirit that i hope we have this discussion. so, with that, i turn it over to my colleague, supervisor cohen. >> thank you very much. good afternoon, everyone. it's nice to see you. i thank you for hearing this item today. both supervisor olague and i express concern and desire of to better coordinate the work being done by the school district and other school -- excuse me, and other city departments, to support and -- to support and increase african-american students achievement and pr
of whether or not certain actions should be taken by the san francisco unified school district, including actions around the issue of waivers. that is a very important issue. to the extent that action is taken, those are things that have to have been at the san francisco board of education, not at this committee. we do not legally have the authority to direct the school district, which is a separate legal entity, to do anything. we hope to provide information today writ with that, i will turn it over to the school district. >> good afternoon. i am the executive director of the educational placement center. i am going to give you an update in terms of a transitional kindergarten program. district staff has been working for the past few weeks to work on implementation. we have processed all the applications that have been coming in. we give parents and families an extended time line when we announced that we were expanding the program to 5 sites instead of the two originally offered. we have a little bit over 190 applicants who have come back to apply for our transitional kindergarten progr
question the report about, real estate services, the san francisco unified school district about how they are utilizing the property. this is a large issue regarding our real estate assets. that is a larger question. i don't think this committee over this topic will be able to answer that question. that is a bigger issue i think the city needs to take a look at. i want to make that comment. a lot of this was geared about our assets. i think we deserve a larger and more thorough conversation in the future. when we talk about why it is we couldn't purchase the facility, why is it that we lost out. i know the city was in the process of doing it, trying to acquire that, from my understanding. the simple matter is we are a public agency that moves slower than some of the other entities. we have less to trade with. for example, property and other things. for these inherent reason and multiple boards, we are slower and less nimble to respond to certain deals that come up in the marketplace that happen very quickly. so i think we all need to recognize this so we can blame and point finger ab
